we are a family who chose to live in country side with a healthy and outdoorsy lifestyle. at home we have a huge vegetable garden and some pets (a dog, cats and tree donkeys that sometimes we used for having relaxing walks!
we do all of this for passion, is not our job ( Ste is a teacher and i am a freelancer about environmental assessment and monitoring) and the best term to describe all of this is hobby farm!
we love to spend time at home but at the same time to go around for visiting and discovering new places, and we do it as much as we can. often! for example we love hiking! in our hills or at our closest mountains.
having a child 10 years old, is not so easy to organize frequently little trip far away from home so a good way for meeting new people is hosting them at home!
Babysitting / child care
we really love cultural exchange and this is the most important reason because we do all this! fortunately we have a lot of time to be dedicated.
here could be nice to come for learning about our environment and about the way locals use it and coexist with it.
every single things about working in the garden, kitchen garden and in the wood and for sure our language! oh , forgot, i have a nice workshop for wood, so a lot of activities and craft about it could be done here!
hosting people means offer to them a possibility for doing something in a enjoyable way. at our home there is always something that need to be done and if these activities fit with you and your skill could be nice do it together!
fortunately our house is big and there is a guest room, part of this family is vegetarian and another part is not! we cook a lot and there is no problem to host people having food requirements (e.g. vegetarian, vegan and so on!)
we have already hosted, mostly for languages (learning english and teaching Italian), now our skills in speaking are a little bit better so we can widen our horizons.
our expectations are that you will be able to share your time with us in an intelligent and wise way.
we do all of this even because our child will be able to speak another language and able to become confident with people living different situation.
